Jonsrud Viewpoint in Sandy Oregon is one of the best places to photograph Mount Hood from its west side. Located in the east Clackamas County town of Sandy, its a promontory that overlooks the Sandy River Canyon with the Sandy River winding through the scene creating a pathway to Mount Hood only 25 miles away. Facing east, Jonsrud Viewpoint is a perfect place for a sunrise.
Jonsrud Viewpoint is named for the Jonsrud family who donated the land for the little park located there. Parking at the viewpoint is very limited.
